Balenciaga, the renowned luxury fashion brand, introduced its latest creation – the Balenciaga Arena Extra-Large Shopper Tote Bag, with a price tag of $2,150. Interestingly, this bag drew attention for its uncanny resemblance to IKEA’s iconic Frakta bag. In a lighthearted response, Ikea showcased its sense of humor by releasing an advertisement providing guidance on distinguishing the original from the ‘copy.’

Made from synthetic material polypropylene the popular Frakta bags were originally designed by siblings Marianne and Knut Hagberg. So, which one will you be picking up? 99-cent Frakta bag or Balenciaga’s Arena Extra-Large Shopping Tote $2,150?
